    REI Stoke 29 Pack - 2013 Special Buy is rated 4.6154 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight pack for day hikes Picked this up to be a pack for longer day hikes where my Flash 18 would be pushed beyond its limits. I needed a bag that could carry all 10 essentials, 2-3 liters of water bottles or hydration bladder, Camera, and have easy access to all of the above. The Stoke 29 near perfectly fits the bill. I looked at several other bags before going with this one. Was very tempted to get a Flash 22 (and still might someday) because of its lightweight and being very similar to my flash 18 (which I love). Also looked at the Mountain Hardwear Fluid 18 and 26, The Mountainsmith Scream, REI Trail 25, and even picked up an Osprey Manta 36 (which was later returned). These were all great bags, but the Stoke 29 stood out from them with its lighter weight and excellent design. So far my favorite feature is how well this bag carries. I picked up the large as I'm 6'0" and 165 lbs with a 32" waist. The torso length is perfect for me and how I prefer to carry my bags. The waist belt is cinched to its maximum and just fits. If I were any skinnier this could be a potential drawback. With the bag loaded down for a long day hike it sits comfortably and moves very well. The stretch side pockets are easy to access without removing the bag. The waist pockets are large enough to accommodate snacks like granola bars or small (M&M sized) bags of trail mix and can also easily fit small electronics like an iPhone without any issues. The large stretch pocket can be a little tricky as you really need to load the main compartment first to ensure what your packing in there sits comfortably. The large main compartment is cavernous and can accommodate just about anything you would need for a full day hike for yourself and maybe one or two other people. And the top lid easily holds maps, keys, extra snacks, etc. Overall a great pack for longer hikes where a smaller pack like the flash 18 would be overstuffed, but where you don't want to go with a larger sized overnight pack that might weigh twice as much.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good backpack, only problem shoulder str Hello I chose this backpack, because I needed a light for walking 1 or 2 days or use it in the city. It is light, spacious. The comfortable side pockets. Very nice front pocket for fast access to coats, camera, etc.. The shoulder straps are not padded and weight (3 liters of water) gets somewhat uncomfortable and in my case, the seam (see picture) the stitching came loose. Hopefully they can correct for future backpacks. The price and performance of the backpack are nice thanks

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2014 update to previous review Wanted to post an update about my experiences with this pack. Have had it now for three months and still love it as much as when I first received it. The pack has shown itself to be versatile with the type of loads it can carry. I've used it for small loads for short hikes and it never felt loose or flapped about. I've used it for scrambling and as a daypack while camping. Just recently I was able to reduce my gear enough that it was my primary pack for an overnight trip to the back country; carrying tent, sleeping bag, food, water, sleeping pad, first aid kit, extra layers, cook pot and stove. Overall with food and water the load was 21 lbs. Was worried if the suspension could handle it, but that worry was for naught. The pack performed wonderfully and was as comfortable as my larger 50 liter backpacks with similar loads. This pack has met and exceeded all my expectations. If you're in the market for a solid medium size pack that can handle an active outdoor life then you can't go wrong with the Stoke 29.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than I thought I love this bag. I've used it for day hikes and as a week long travel bag. I'm going to try it for an overnight, and I think a very lightweight backpacker could make it work for 5+ days. Great size, roomier than I expected, and very comfortable to carry even when fully packed. The only complaint I have is that the hipbelt pockets are useless. They're too small and the zipper placement makes anything that does fit fall out when you open them. Aside from that, this bag is great. I definitely recommend it. I tried the Flash 50, Flash 45, and the Flash 22 and didn't like any of those. This is the bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The pack's pluses are also it's minuses I used the Stoke 29 pack for the first time on a 3-week backpacking trip to SE Asia. It's a very lightweight pack because the material is thin and it doesn't have any internal or external frame. Not having the frame is advantageous because I was able to roll the pack up and put it in my bigger 65L pack when I didn't need it. But at the same time, since it doesn't have a frame, if you don't load up the pack, it will have no "structure." At times, I just had some magazines and some beach clothes in the main compartment and on the top compartment, I had my electronics. Because there's no frame, the top pocket just drooped down. It's not a big deal, but just something to be aware of if the pack isn't fully loaded or loaded enough to give it some "rigidity."

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UL backpack! This is an excellent UL backpack. I use this on 1 or 2 night trips. I can see a true ultralighter getting more nights out of it. I like to carry a tent and some other luxury items, so I consume more space with those items. If you rock a tiny tarp, then you definitely could make this last 5-7 nights replacing the tent space with food. It's about as lightweight as a backpack will go at 1.5 pounds. The color isn't the most appealing, but at $60-ish, it is a steal. There's just enough room in all of the right places for appropriate gear storage. This backpack also helped get me through a 17 day trip through Europe for work, carrying some clothing items as well as a large laptop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultralighter for short trips Great for ultralight backpacking trips up to 3-4 days (around 15 lb), where a bear cannister is not needed. Holds more than you might imagine, and easy organization is enabled by the waist, lid, and shove-it pockets. Ultralight purists would balk at some of these bells-and-whistles, but for the price, weight, and features this is a winner. Also a great size for carry-on travel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Day Pack I got this as a day pack for longer hikes. It has been great so far. I store snacks in the hip pockets for easy access and I am happy that the mesh pockets on the side are deep enough to prevent my Nalgene from falling out. It has a surprising amount of storage space in the main compartment and the top pocket is nice for easy access. The only downside for me is that the hydration sleeve was too narrow for my 3L Osprey hydraulics reservoir. But other than that, everything is awesome.
